Tales from Former Huns: Tiff’s Scentsy Shenanigans

Tiff, a follower of Elle Beau, shares her time as a Scentsy rep – from recruiting over coffee, to letting her ‘business’ affect her own wedding day.

UK-based follower Tiff [not her real name] has asked for her Scentsy story to be shared with you all. She has been chatting to me since the summer with a view to posting on this blog, but by the time she had finished telling me her tale, the Anti-MLM Coalition had been launched. Therefore, we both agreed that our new anti-MLM resource page would be the best home for her experience. 🙂

“I applied to attend the Younique Foundation retreat…I really wish I didn’t.”

One of Elle’s Y-spies applied to attend the Younique Foundation’s Haven Retreat, before she realised what a sham of a charity it really is. Read about her ‘assessment’ process with one of their so-called clinicians.

Last night, I had a conversation with one of my Y-spies that left me with significant food for thought. She is relatively new to the anti-MLM movement – still an “active” Younique presenter, but with absolutely no intentions of carrying on.

In her first month of being a presenter, she applied to attend the Younique Foundation‘s “Haven Retreat” for childhood sexual abuse survivors. What she told me shook me to my core, and reaffirmed my views of this so-called sham (readCharity or Travesty? Let’s look at the facts…for my collaboration article with Maz Carrah).

Tales from Former Huns: Della’s Avon Tribulations

Elle is certainly not the only one to have a bad MLM experience. Della speaks about her Avon Lady stint, including unsupportive uplines & territorial reps.

I’m comforted to know I’m not the only one to get bamboozled by MLM schemes.  

Many followers have been kind enough to contact me to share their experiences with MLMs – we’ve had accounts from Ann Summers, Arbonne and of course, Maz Carrah adding her voice to #TeamPoonique

UK-based follower Della [not her real name] has asked for her Avon story to be shared with you all. Now, Avon has established itself as a household name, and its perceived as “the teddy-bear of MLMs“, so it will be interesting to hear her story.

Observations From a Concerned Friend: Magda Needs Saving From The Y-Life

Elle recently received an account from Lillie, a woman whose friend Magda has been sucked into Younique. Read her rant on how her friend has changed, and not in a good way…

Many followers have been kind enough to contact me to share their experiences with MLMs – check out my Tales From Former Huns section to read their accounts. This tale, however, is a little different.

Today, I am sharing this saga from “Lillie” [not her real name]. Lillie is a frustrated friend who wishes to discuss her observations of Magda, a stay-at-home-mother who is truly besotted with the Y-life.

Tales from Former Huns: Jessi’s Arbonne Escapade

Elle is certainly not the only one to have a bad MLM experience. Jessi was stung by the Arbonne wasp – read about her expensive experience here.

I’m comforted to know I’m not the only one to get bamboozled by MLM schemes.  

Many followers have been kind enough to contact me to share their experiences with MLMs – previously, a lady called Emily was kind enough to share her Ann Summers fiasco with me.

Now, UK-based follower Jessi [not her real name] has asked for her Arbonne story to be shared with you all.

The Little Purple Younique Card

Elle never went into as much detail about the “little purple card”, as she never used hers. Maz Carrah did, however. Elle shares Maz’s article, which goes in-depth about the fees and nonsense surrounding this Younique card.

You may have seen a Y-hun on your newsfeed refer to “her little purple card”.  I certainly did, back when Scarlett was bragging about the things she had bought back in Chapter 9. However, I never really used my card so I couldn’t give you as much tell-all information on it.  Not so fortunately for her, my fellow ex-Pooniquer Maz Carrah did.

Tales from Former Huns: Emily’s Ann Summers Fiasco

Elle is certainly not the only one to have a bad MLM experience. Mum-of-two Emily shares her experience as an Ann Summers rep.

I’m comforted to know I’m not the only one to get bamboozled by MLM schemes.  

Many followers have been kind enough to contact me to share their experiences with MLMs – not just Younique, but Juice Plus, Arbonne, Forever Living…and in this case, Ann Summers parties.

UK mum-of-two Emily [not her real name] has asked for her story to be shared with you all.
